Remarkable Traditional Garden
Dunmore Gardens are on the Donegal Garden Trail. With over 2.5 acres of private and immaculately kept flowers, winding paths and ponds, it’s an idyllic secluded spot.
The walled garden boasts:
– a rich collection of ericaceous plants
– elaborately intricate paths that radiate from the huge central redwood in the middle of the garden
– willows gracefully arching over the pond
– beautiful white lilies
– early 20th century terraced rose beds
– hidden archways
– secret corners.
The wonderfully traditional walled garden dates back to 1742 and is set in 100 acres of farm and woodland belonging to Dunmore House, a lovely Georgian Country house.
The McFarland family have lived at Dunmore for four generations and have opened their doors to many weddings, celebrations and garden parties. We are always open to all visitors looking for an occasion or simply to relax in the sanctuary of the walled garden. The newly restored heritage barn and marquee is available for events, conferences and parties.
